Fodor's Review

Likened to everything from corncobs to the spires of Antonio GaudĂ­'s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, these twin towers were a bold departure from the severity of the International Style, which began to dominate high-rise architecture beginning in the 1950s. Designed by Bertrand Goldberg and completed in 1964, they contain condominiums (all pie-shaped, with curving balconies); the bottom 19 stories of each tower are given over to exposed spiral parking garages. The complex is also home to four restaurants, the House of Blues nightclub, the Hotel Sax Chicago, a huge bowling alley, and the titular marina.
